Rubber Ring

Rubber Ring

★★★★ “A humorous look at rural England and the challenges facing LGBT teens who live far away from the big city… There are few plays I have seen that had audiences laughing so long and so regularly" Carns Theatre Passion

Jimmy is sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in Sheringham. He’s screwed. Well he’s not actually: that’s the problem... When pop star Morrissey comes to London, Jimmy flees to the city to try and find his hero and himself. ‘Rubber Ring’ is a laugh-out-loud one man play that in 2016 opened at The Pleasance Islington to rave reviews before transferring to The Tristan Bates Theatre in London’s West End then embarking on a UK tour. ‘Rubber Ring’ won New Wolsey Ipswich’s Pulse Festival Suitcase Prize 2017 and is currently being adapted for TV with Hat Trick Productions.

★★★★★ "Rubber Ring captures the core of the Morrissey experience: the romance of the outsider, the loneliness of sexual confusion and the bonds that form in the most unlikely places. There are few things I've enjoyed more than Rubber Ring" London City Nights
